Going to schoolThe journey to and from school can be fun as it is a chance for us to meet people and share a little time of friendship and togetherness.
It can also be a challenging experience if schoolmates provoke, tease or harass us. When we are threatened like this we often react in one of two ways; with fear or with aggression. There are, however, other options that we can use; options that will build our own self-respect, our respect for others and the respect others have for us.
In this unit we look at some important attitudes and skills that we can use in these situations. Just like the athlete who practises every day to win a medal, we will need to practise these skills in our daily lives if we want to grow confident in resolving conflict.
